It may work but you will only get the 333MHZ because thats is the max for that computer, Try it out I would be interested in seeing if it will even work at 333. It was not long ago it was 133mhz WoW hey now there up in the 1000s on high end computers. All I could say is it shouldn't hurt anything to try it, if it will even fit in the memory slot they may have a little different style. so it may not even fit. Give R a try.

Three things to consider when choosing memory


1) What is the Maximum TOTAL Amount, that the motherboard will support.

2) What is the Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot.

3) What type of Ram Memory is it?


A) What type is it?

Single-Data Rate SDRAM?
SDR Sdram which is erroneously just referred to as SDRAM.

Double-Data Rate SDRAM? DDR Sdram
Double-Data Rate 2 SDRAM? DDR2 Sdram
Double-Data Rate 3 SDRAM? DDR2 Sdram

(See? They are ALL ->
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)

Then you get down to the basics, that is really supposed to be known...........

B) What Frequency Rate does it operate at? ('Speed')
200MegaHertz? 266MHz? 333MHz? 400MHz? 533MHz? 667MHz?
800MHz? 1066MHz? 1333MHz?

C) What Voltage does it use?
JEDEC has set the standard for Ram Memory.
'High performance' ram memory may use higher voltage.

Example;
DDR Sdram
JEDEC has set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts (DC)
That is what the factory has set as a default voltage, in BIOS Setup.
High performance ram memory? May be 2.6 volts, or 2.7 volts.

D) Ram Timings;
Shorter to explain this way,

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/ram.htm

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Understanding-RAM-Timings/26

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SDRAM_latency

E) Whether or not ECC or Non-ECC is to be used,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECC_memory

ECC ram memory is generally used in a Server computer.
The data (Information) is analyzed 2 to 3 times, before it goes through.

F) Buffered or Unbuffered ram memory:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffered_memory#Buffered_memory

G) Chip Configuration:

The black rectangle chips on the side/s of the ram memory module ('Stick'), are called DRAM chips.

They are arranged in an order, and connected via circuitry, to be accessed as the ram memory manufacturer has deemed.

This you shouldn't have to worry about.
In fact you can probably get away without knowing D) also.

What test is this for?

System reguirements to inrease ram memory


Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate, ('Speed'), that the Processor's -> FSB does.

Your motherboard supports Processors that have either a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus, (400MHz FSB), or 533MHz FSB, or 800MHz FSB.

(Northwood Core for 400MHz FSB. The rest is in the other solution I provided)

Processor has a 400MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram ram memory that is 266MHz.
(PC2100)

Processor has a 533MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram ram memory that is either 266MHz, Or 333MHz.
(PC2100 and PC2700 respectively)

Processor has an 800MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram that is either 266MHz, or 333Mhz, or 400Mhz.
(PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively)

NOTE*
When using a processor that has an 800MHz FSB, and using PC2700, (DDR at 333MHz), the PC2700 ram memory will run at ->
320MHz.

JEDEC has set the voltage requirements for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts.
'Performance' ram memory that is DDR Sdram may use higher voltages.
Not recommended unless you know how to overclock.

Although the motherboard, and the ram memory module may have SPD, it doesn't always work,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

A lot of times you are faced with going into BIOS Setup, and changing the ram memory voltage, IF BIOS Setup has this feature.
This is why I say overclocking experience helps tremendously.

You want Low Density, Unbuffered, Non-ECC, and a CL of 2.5 for PC2700, and a CL of 3.0, (3) for PC3200.

[Why would anyone want to run PC2100> Lol! ]

HOW TO I KNOW THE BUS SPEED


You know 'Upgradation' is not a word, right? lol!

How about Upgrade ability?

The Intel D101GGC motherboard has a Front Side Bus MAXIMUM frequency rate of 800MegaHertz. (FSB max rate is 800MHz)

Therefore, it depends on the PROCESSOR that is being used, as to what frequency rate of Ram Memory that can be used.

[ Excuse me. Frequency Rate = 'Speed'. The layman's term ]

Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the frequency rate, of the FRONT SIDE BUS for the Processor.

Have a Processor that has a maximum FSB frequency rate of 800MHz?
You can use Ram Memory that operates at a frequency rate of 400MHz, or 333MHz. (Do recommend using PC3200, however)

Have a Processor that has a Maximum frequency rate of 533MHz?
You can use DDR Sdram at 333MHz. (PC2700)

The Intel D101GGC uses DDR Sdram ram memory.
DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz = PC2700
DDR Sdram at 400MHz = PC3200

There are TWO ram memory expansion slots.
The MAXIMUM for EACH ram memory slot is 1GigaByte. (1GB)
The Maximum TOTAL Amount for the motherboard is 2GB.

ALWAYS make SURE you have a ram memory module ('Stick'), in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
A Processor reads Slot 1 first. If there is no ram memory in Slot 1, the computer will not work.

How to know what the FSB is of the processor, you have currently installed?
I suggest using the free CPU-Z,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

The above link shows the default screen for CPU-Z. The screen that automatically comes up when you open CPU-Z.

There are tabs across the top that you click on, to get other information. (Caches, Mainboard, Memory, SPD, Graphics, About)
More on this in a moment.

Let's look at the Processor example shown.

1) Name: Intel Core i7 860
It is an Intel Core i7 processor, and the model number is 860,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Lynnfield.22_.2845_nm.29

2) Code Name: Lynnfield
Based on the Lynnfield technology, and the 45nm architecture.
(nm stands for NanoMeter. One billionth of a Meter)

3) Package: Socket 1156 LGA
Uses an LGA1156 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156

4) Technology: 45nm (Already stated by looking at the Wikipedia link)

5) Core Voltage: 1.216 V
Looking at the Wikipedia link, you can see this processor's voltage range is 0.65 to 1.4 Volts.
Or stated as 0.650 to 1.400 Volts. It is -> DC Voltage.

The 1.216 Voltage stated, is what that Processor is using now.
It is real time information.

6) Specification: Intel (Registered trademark) Core (TradeMark) i7 CPU.

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply -> Processor, for short.

8) 860 = Intel Model Number
@2.80GHz stands for 2.80GigaHertz. The MAXIMUM frequency rate that the processor is designed to operate at.

9) Family, Model, Stepping, Ext.Family, Ext.Model, and Revision, are Intel technology factors, for this processor.
What Family of Processors it was developed from, what Model design, what stepping it uses, what Revision of design, and etc.

10) Instruction: The Instruction Sets, or instruction set architecture, it uses.
The basic MMX, and SSE, and variations of the SSE instruction sets, and further development of Instruction Sets through the years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instruction_set

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_instruction_sets

11) Forget about the Cache column. What you are concerned with is under the Clocks (Core#0) subheading.

I just stated the above, so you might have a better understanding, of what you are looking at.
(Also it may spark something inside you, to join a Research and Development team, and design future computer technology. Who knows, right? )

12) Core Speed:
Again with the 'Speed'. It is Frequency Rate.
This is the maximum 'speed' that the Processor will operate at.
(Maximum frequency rate)

When you have CPU-Z going, you can watch this frequency rate, change. It is showing Real Time information. AS IT HAPPENS.

13) Multiplier: The multiplier times the internal clock 'speed', of the Processor.

Forget about the information shown. It is for an Intel Core i7 processor, and this processor operates on a much different technology, than the Intel processor in your computer.

What you are concerned with is shown in the box, to the right of -
Bus Speed.

A) If you have a Processor with a 533MHz FSB, the number shown will be 133.2
Why?
Because Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
133.2 times 4 = 532.8
This is rounded up to 533, or 533MHz.

If you have an Intel processor with a Front Side Bus of 800MHz, the number in the box will be 200.6
200MHz (Rounded down)

Processor with an 800MHz FSB? Use PC3200.
(DDR Sdram at 400MHz)

Processor with a 533MHz FSB? Use PC2700.
(DDR Sdram at 333MHz)

Can you put 2 igb memery into the blue connectors and 2 512 gb into the black connectors


Yes, provided;

A) The Maximum Total Amount for the Ram Memory is at least 3GB.

B) The Maximum Amount for each Ram Memory slot is at least 1GB.

C) The first blue connector is ram memory Slot 1. (DIMM 1)

The Processor 'sees' the Ram Memory in Slot 1 first.
If there is a large amount of ram memory, (1GB), and a small amount (512MB), the large amount goes in Slot 1.

ALL ram memory must be the same 'speed', (Frequency Rate), or the slower ram memory 'speed' will be used.
If there is too much of a difference it may not work at all.

Ram memory needs to be 400MHz, or 533MHz, for your computer.
{DDR2 Sdram at 400MHz = PC2-3200
DDR2 Sdram at 533MHz = PC2-4200 (Also known as PC2-4300)

I want to know that shall i put pentium 4/ 2.4 Ghz/ 533 Fsb/ Processor on this Gigabyte 845GVM-RZ board? will it support ?and i have 1 Gb ddr1 400 mhz ram will this work on this Board?


Yes for the Intel Pentium 4/2.4GHz/533FSB processor. (Socket 478)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Scroll through. What sSpec number is on top of the processor's case? {You are following Anti-Static Precautions, correct? }

Won't support better than a Prescott Core Pentium 4. (Next chart down)

The Gigabyte GA-8I ((Supports 400MHz or 533MHz FSB)

NO to the Ram Memory.
The Gigabyte GA-8I845GVM-RZ supports DDR Sdram at 333Mhz. (PC2700)
IMHO it will not support DDR Sdram at 400MHz. (PC3200)

My reasoning is this;

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate of the Processor.

Processor FSB > MAXIMUM frequency rate is 533MegaHertz for the GA-8I845GVM-RZ
Ram memory at 333MHz is doable.
Not 400MHz.

No, you won't be able to overclock, and bring the FSB of the Processor high enough for PC3200 Ram Memory.
(The rest of the motherboard wouldn't work anyway if you did. PCI Express bus, PCI bus, etc., would not match)

Hi,
The reason you are getting the beeps is because your computer has found Hardware problems. Different amounts and length of beeps mean different things. Laptops are different from Desktops so i cant tell you what it is but its most likely to be the RAM since you tried to change it.

When changing RAM: Not all ram is the same
1. Locate the original Ram. Does it Say DDR1 or DDR2. Make sure you get the same!
2. The Speed of the ram

PC66=66MHz SD Ram
PC133=133MHz SD Ram
PC1600=200MHZ DDR2
PC2100=266MHz DDR2
PC2700=333MHZ DDR2
PC3200=400MHz DDR2
PC3500=533MHz DDR2
PC5300=667Mhz DDR2
PC6400=800MHz DDR2
PC8500=1066MHz DDR2

Make sure both ram have the same specs and try to make it the same as the original stick.
When changing Hardware, be careful of Electro Static Discharge. Touch something metal like your computer case or a aluminum kitchen sink. Then static stored in your body may destroy the ram or your Laptop.
